Limited edition Freelander launched

Limited edition Freelander launchedThe snow that arrived in the UK in mid-January was said to have resulted in an increase in calls to Land Rover showrooms with the new 2013 Freelander 2 range the model most enquired about. Obviously, potential owners read our Freelander 2 feature driving in Quebec, Canada in the last issue! The new model range has its first special edition, the Black & White has now been announced. Only 600 will be produced, available in either Santorini Black metallic or solid Fuji White. The Black & White is based on the S model and available with the 150bhp eD4 engine in two-wheel drive (Why, for heavens sake?) or the TD4 engine, the latter can also be specified with the six-speed automatic gearbox. The TD4 manual is priced at £23,495 and the automatic at £24,995, which are very competitive prices for such a capable SUV. Worth a test drive, even if it’s not snowing. If you are looking for a new Range Rover however, despite deliveries arriving in dealers in January, there are reports of order books full for the next nine months and beyond!
